Benefits of having an online portfolio
The importance of having a professional online presence is more important than ever. An online video portfolio will certainly increase your visibility and presence. It also allows you to easily share and showcase your work. Employers or potential clients can just click on a link and watch your previous works.
Professional Way To Showcase Your Work
Making an online video portfolio about your personality, brand, and experience is a polished way to share your expertise with others. Videos can be more creative and innovative than traditional portfolios and are able to share with anyone in the world.
It’s A Great First Impression For Employers
If an employer sees your link on your resume, they’ll likely click on it to see what you’ve built. A video portfolio or video resume is quick easy and visual. For many job fields a demo reel is even requested or expected. Seeing you’ve taken the time to create a video portfolio and put a lot of effort into it will be a killer first impression. Watch an example video resume.
After Google, Youtube is the second largest search engine, and thus having a video-portfolio can be a great addition to get your work seen. Any time we get to offer our work in a different format, it allows us to both see and showcase different angles which otherwise may remain hidden or less apparent. Showcase your portfolio, give an employer the option to watch your video when scrolling through your resume, and they might well take you up on the video, which, in being rarer, can also be more memorable.
Another aspect of video advantage of is the music added to the portfolio. It helps to set the tone and mood. A quick, engaging video may have a better chance of introducing a broader spectrum of one’s work, while focusing on (and lingering on) the “best of the best” of one’s portfolio. A well-done video can transport a viewer through the work in a most enjoyable way. Have information, visuals and audio all perceived at the same time.
